During the few couple of years, I've tried to read, watch and learn as much as possible about riding techniques and safety improvement. So far, my best recommendations for any rider -noob or experienced- are:


(Don't get fooled by the "sporty" covers, the principles taught in these books and videos apply for any kind of street bike)




BOOK: Proficient Motorcycling I and II by David L. Hough





BOOK: Total Control: High Performance Street Riding Techniques by Lee Parks





BOOK: Sport Riding Techniques: How To Develop Real World Skills for Speed, Safety, and Confidence on the Street and Track by Nick Ienatsch





BOOK: A Twist of the Wrist 2: The Basics of High-Performance Motorcycle Riding by Keith Code





VIDEO: A Twist of the Wrist II by Keith Code





BOOKLET: You and Your Motorcycle: Riding Tips - Motorcycle Safety Foundation





BOOKLET: Motorcycle Operator Manual - Motorcycle Safety Foundation





EXTRA: Dr. Jim's Question of the Day - MSF - Motorcycle Safety Foundation





Remember, you cannot learn how to ride properly just by reading and watching videos, but using them wisely -studying them and analyzing the things you need to improve- will help you a lot in your daily riding/practice. The right mix of knowledge, awareness and conscious practice is what's going to make you a safer, better, more proficient motorcyclist.

Amazon review:
"I've been riding my whole life and I read a lot of books on motorcycle riding techniques. I also train new riders. This book gives an insight into the coordination of man and machine that I've never seen touched on before. Its not an easy read. You have to deeply consider what he is explaining. But once you understand his approach to rider/motorcycle operation new skills will surely follow.

"If you desire to get the most out of your riding, becoming a more proficient rider, and really understanding what is going on as you motor down the road this book is worth reading. The author presents frequent examples to help you understand the point he is making.

"This book will earn a spot on my shelf as a valued reference tool."

BOOK: Total Control: High Performance Street Riding Techniques by Lee Parks



BOOK: A Twist of the Wrist 2: The Basics of High-Performance Motorcycle Riding by Keith Code



VIDEO: A Twist of the Wrist II by Keith Code

The three above are excellent resources. I have read both books cover to cover and watched the video several times. I also can't recommend enough both Lee Parks or Keith Code's classes. I have taken both (free:thumbup:--benefit of the Marine Corps taking a vested interest in motorcycle riders.) and highly recommend them if you can afford it. My skills improved dramatically.

Another source is Performance Riding Techniques, which I also have. Get's more into the techy/engineering side of riding using MotoGP riders as examples.



BOOK: Performance Riding Techniques - The MotoGP Manual of track riding skills by And Ibbott
